My Latest Poetry Acquisition

...or, I can't fight this feeling any longer.

Since my poetic nerve has been acting up lately and since I got...well, since my wife and I got a Barnes and Noble gift card for Christmas (I can't think of a better gift!), I picked up Pablo Neruda: Selected Poems, a bilingual volume (Spanish and English) edited and with a foreword by Nathaniel Tarn. I've wanted it for a while now, since I first came across it here, and I'm anxious to dive in.

Don't worry: I'll keep you posted on my time with Pablo.

And for a little taste of the man himself, you can find some of his poems here and here.

Happy reading.
